Default Hello from Florida

Hi to all... been following some threads in the forum for some time now and thought i'd pedal up from 'Lurksville'.

Been thinkin' about installing a motor to my ol' Schwinn 'World Sport' but have some doubts and questions.

Had it for half my life ... i'm 50 now. Was purchased with the thought of upgrading in the future. After well... probably thousands of miles, I never felt I needed a better one. The Chromolly frame and alloy everything else makes for a truly effortless ride.

However, I have not been using it as much as I used to and after accidentally stumbling into 'motorbicycling'com, I thought i'd give it a try.

What concerns me is the tire width which is 1 inch. Don't know if I could add a wider wheel with tire to it or just leave the narrow one on there. My plan was to disable the gears and make it a single speed first... don't want all those added cables once I add a motor.

any suggestions and guidance for my decision ?
